if you dont have a kilawatt or such at the wall watching your numbers youre going based purely on some dude's bad spellung advice from the net :)

ppl think i kid,lol, but im dead serious about it. went to a buds place, his pc would shutdown. hes got dual 480's and an i7 setup that should be ok on seasonic built 850 watts, no oc'ing. so when i take a look at the wall its pulling bout 100 watts (?) more than it should. and everest showed one of the cards at 70-80 at idle with fan ramped up pritty high(tried it alone outside the case)..off to rma it goes :)

still, happy its fine and not in smokey heavens
